Preventative Maintenance and Fixing Heating Problems
Believe it or not, over 40 percent of our service calls for system breakdowns could have been prevented with regular maintenance. This is why we always advise our customers to invest in one of our affordable preventative maintenance plans. It's the ideal time for our technicians to troubleshoot small problems before larger problems develop. Keep in mind that if a worn part is not replaced timely, it can lead to significant damage to other components in the home heating system.
Cracked heat exchangers, bad igniters, faulty blower motors, dirty flame sensors, clogged inducer motors, dirty coils and dirty filters are all common causes of heating problems that could've been handled during a preventative maintenance service visit. Heat exchangers fail due to lack of maintenance and dirty indoor coils. When a heat exchanger cracks, it can cause carbon monoxide to leak through the duct system. This toxic gas can cause health problems and even death. Igniters are responsible for lighting the main burner. Even with proper maintenance, the lifespan of a typical igniter is only three to five years.
The blower motors run a lot and are prone to breaking down. If you don't feel any air coming from the vents, it's possible the blower motor is not functioning properly. During a maintenance visit, the amp draw is checked and the motor is oiled. Flame sensors sense the pilot flame and allow the gas burners to turn on. If flames sensors are dirty, they cannot perform their function. Flame sensors are always cleaned during a maintenance visit. The inducer motor is often clogged with leaves, dead insects and trash. This type of debris will block the motor from turning on. The motor may also need oil to run properly. Lubricating the blower motor and cleaning debris are tasks performed during a service visit.
Home heating problems can also be a result of dirty coils. Dirty coils can result in a lack of air flow and cause overheating of the furnace. If the furnace shuts down, damage can be caused to the heat exchanger. A preventative maintenance visit includes the cleaning of evaporator coils to keep the whole home heating system running properly. Dirty air filters not only create more dust in the home, they can cause the components of the heating system to work harder and result in premature failure of the system.
